The jury in the Jayden Parkinson murder trial has been sent home for the day.

At about 3pm today it was sent out to consider its verdict following Judge Patrick Eccles' summing up.

Ben Blakeley, 22, formerly of Christchurch Road, Reading, admits killing 17-year-old Jayden on December 3 last year but denies murder.

His younger brother Jake Blakeley, 17, of Venners Water, Didcot, admits perverting the course of justice but denies preventing a lawful burial.

The jury is expected to return tomorrow at about 10am, when it will continue to consider its verdict.
